Seventeen-year-old Kristina Snow is introduced to crank on
a trip to visit her wayward father. Caught up in a fast-paced, frightening,
and unfamiliar world, she morphs into "Bree" after she "shakes hands
with the monster." Her fearless, risk-taking alter ego grows stronger,
"convincing me to be someone I never dreamed I'd want to be." When
Kristina goes home, things don't return to normal. Although she tries to
reconnect with her mother and her former life as a good student, her drug
use soon takes over, leaving her "starving for speed" and for boys who
will soon leave her scarred and pregnant. Hopkins writes in free-verse
poems that paint painfully sharp images of Kristina/Bree and those
around her, detailing how powerful the "monster" can be. The poems are
masterpieces of word, shape, and pacing, compelling readers on to the
next chapter in Kristina's spiraling world. This is a topical page-turner and
a stunning portrayal of a teen's loss of direction and realistically uncertain
